Former President Trump claimed that he would secure the state of New York and its 28 electoral votes in November. Nevertheless, recent surveys indicate otherwise.

A video was posted on Truth Social on Tuesday by Trump, who was born in Queens, to encourage viewers to participate in the state’s June 25 primary.

“I believe that with your support, we can win the state of New York and I’m looking to win it as your presidential nominee. We are going to win New York – remember those words. I hope I’m gonna be correct. If I am, the election is over. There’s tremendous discontent in New York with hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants taking over your schools and your playgrounds, and the crime that’s happening in the city of New York and the state of New York. The lack of supervision, the lack of control, the lack of leadership, terrible thing is happening in New York. I think we can win it.” Trump said in the video.

President Joe Biden is currently leading Trump in the deep blue state, according to polls.

However, Republicans have cited recent surveys that indicate Trump is within single digits in the state.

The state of New York has not been carried by a Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan in 1984.
